One reason to get homeonwer’s insurance and auto insurance from the same carrier

Yesterday’s question was whether you should buy homeowner’s insurance from the same carriers as your auto insurance. Here’s one person who says yes:

Just had Allstate drop my homeowners insurance due to the “potential” of the upcoming hurricane season. I live on the North Shore of Long Island. I was told if I had the auto policy under Allstate, they would have kept me on. I have spent hours on the phone trying to get a new policy which had unexpectedly become a huge burden due to the age of my home (built in 1925) & underground oil tank.

In the end, I just signed up for a nice policy, with increased coverages, & for less money but had to do a lot of digging. Ultimately, they are covering my oil tank for leaks which is another mess I will have to deal with in the near future. Oh, moving the auto policy over gave me a about a 5% discount on the homeowners.
